Muscle spasms released with acupuncture, a case report

Muscle spasms or muscle cramps are very common, and they occur when a muscle involuntarily contracts and cannot relax. This most frequently occur in the leg muscles, but any muscles including neck, back, hips, abdomen, hands, feet can go spasms. Typically, they involve part or all of a muscle, or several muscles in a group. Muscle spasms range in intensity from mild twitches to severe pain. When this happens, it may accompany enormous pain. The related muscle may feel harder than normal to the touch. It may show visible signs of twitching. Muscle spasms can occur at any time to anyone. It can happen when you walk, sit, perform any exercises or even sleep.
Acupuncture have an instantly effect of releasing muscle spasm. For example, a 52-year-old lady had sudden upper back pain when she carried a heavy bag. This pain was persisting for a few days and she could not move her back and neck. Pain killers did not help. She had one acupuncture treatment and most of the pain had gone immediately after the treatment.
